If you do upgrade and you still find there are issues with 4.0.7,you can always roll back to 4.0.4

Oh yes, I forgot it came with a singular installer, instead of one of those installation managers which take the liberty of rolling back away from you. Forgetting of which is kind of a feat after going through the install procedure of the sample content IK-style...

Thanks for the affirmation, I'll give it a go.

Sound on Sound just reviewed SampleTank 4.  Check out the full article here: http://bit.ly/2Hyh3Wu

Quote

"SampleTank 4's high-quality sounds and features aimed at the live context make for a great combination. If you need a broad palette of high-quality sounds within a single, easy-to-use package, it is undoubtedly a serious contender. It brings some significant improvements in features and sounds. As an easy-to-use, all-in-one sonic workhorse it remains a great choice for both studio and live use."

Any reactions to v4.0.8?

What’s the buzz?

Working fine here

I loaded a patch (A Wide Open Gum) into 4.08 that I know crashes 4.07 with the playback disabled.   It played fine.  (This is the issue I formally reported to IKM Support)

I am doing a project with 4.08.  So far, it's looking good - no crashes so far.

 For anyone interested, t here was a recent update to the way Sound Library Updates are handled in My Products for SampleTank 4.  They are now in their own location  and due to this, outside of the expiration period for sounds. These can be downloaded at any time. Check out the image below. I figured a couple of you here would appreciate the heads up. 🤘

The sound content will remain as is for now, but we've separated updates to make things easier for everyone. We still suggest backing up your content after downloading.

How about putting the Instrument installer in that new location too? Wouldn’t that make some sense?

The instruments and samples go hand in hand. The updates will include any necessary instruments and samples to update your content.

It's a step forward, but read it again. This does not include the sounds downloads themselves.

It is an improvement.  Before when your sound downloads expired you could no longer download the sound updates as well.  So when they updated the sounds you might have to pay to get that update.  They have now fixed that, the updates are now separate from the sounds download.  It's a good step.

Baby steps...

But the proof of them "getting" it would require a bigger change to their download policy. ;)

I archive all of my downloads locally, so no big deal for me. But I have seen so many complaints about this, that I can only conclude that they are shooting themselves in the foot with their reluctance to change policy.

Alternatively, a friendlier way for them to limit bandwidth use would be to offer a couple of lifetime re-downloads before charging, rather than a time limit.

But with modern large scale content delivery networks available, how big a deal could a few extra downloads be to their bottom line vs. potential lost goodwill?  They have to host the content somewhere anyway for the new customers!

They really need a download manager.  The pain that installing Sampletank 4 MAX inflected really shouldn't have been allowed to happen.  If Toontrack and UVI can do it, IK can too.  Even if they are determined to keep charging for extra downloads they could at least create a manager so that downloading and installing all that content isn't so painful. 

If they could remove that customer crushing download policy AND solve their download/install pain and suffering factor it would be a huge win.  It's also perhaps the cheapest advertising platform they could ever hope to have.  Offering them a chance to present new products right to their existing customers along with that comfy warm feeling of getting updates.  There is a reason you manage your products using store fronts for Google Play and Apple -- promotion/exposure/advertising.

Arturia Software Center, Native Access from Native Instruments, and  the XLN  Online Installer all show  good examples to follow for download managers.

In addition to simplifying the download/installation process for the user, the biggest upside is that a manager makes it   simple to tell at a glance if you have all of your content installed, as well as if anything needs updating.

A manager could also make it more attractive for a customer to try a trial or demo of a new product, if you know that it can be easily installed/uninstalled with a couple of clicks. That might be a big plus for IK marketing! :D

I have no issues with the way IK does it.  It goes to my download folder and then I can archive it.
